Restricting an application to a set of users

Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) lets you restrict access to applications to specific sets of users or security groups. To view the procedure for enabling the app to enable user assignments, search the Microsoft Azure Active Directory documentation. If the user assignment requirement is set to Yes, then you must assign the Azure AD users to the application in the Azure portal before they can log in to NetVault.

Under Users and groups, click Add user.
Click Assign.

Configuring Azure AD in NetVault Backup

On the NetVault Server Settings page, under User management, click Identity Provider.
In the Identity Provider window, enter the Application ID and Directory ID.
Click Apply.

Managing an Azure AD user

The following list identifies what various users can and cannot do within NetVault Backup as it pertains to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD):

The following procedures detail ways of managing a Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) user account.

Adding an Azure AD user

As with Active Directory (AD), the preferred method of adding an Azure AD user is for the applicable user to log in and let NetVault Backup complete the authentication process. However, if you have the applicable privileges, at a minimum, you must have the Users — Administer user accounts privilege, you can manually add the user, where it will also consider the privileges defined to the selected user before renaming it to an Azure AD user.

When you add an Azure AD user to the NetVault Backup Server, NetVault Backup automatically fetches the respective user information from Azure AD and populates it in the NetVault Backup user details. When you add users manually, NetVault Backup automatically assigns the user the privileges that are defined for the Azure AD group to which the user belongs.

On the Manage User Accounts and User Groups page, click Add User.
Select the user on Manage User Accounts and User Groups page and click Modify Details.
Click Apply.
